Bismillahir rahmanir raheem
I’ve wanted to try miso for such a long time but just your run of the mill miso soup wasn’t really what I was looking for in terms of a recipe. I’m not usually a fan of aubergines (egg plants, whatever you call them) but this may be the meal that changes my mind forever.
Miso has so many amazing health benefits and it’s a great source of zinc, managnese and copper.
A new frontier for me tonight…. AUBERGINES (egg plants,whatever you wana call em lol)! I decided to make miso aubergines. The marinade tasted 👌 and when it came out the oven, even BETTER! I'm generally not a fan of aubergines but this may have me sold. And it was quick 😆 I wrote down the recipe so expect to see it on the blog InshaAllah #foodielover #vegforlife #plantloversofinstagram
WHERE DOES MISO COME FROM?
Miso is derived from fermented soya beans. The fermentation of the beans means they’re great for gut health and are a natural probiotic.
Some of the other benefits of miso:
- It is a complete protein, it contains all essential amino acids
- It aids in the digestion of your food when eaten with other things. This is the case for most fermented foods
- It is a good source of vitamin B, in particular, B12, something that vegans typically supplement
- It strengthens the immune system
- It is high in antioxidants
